Seer Stones and Mobile Phones
“Every man who lived on the earth was entitled to a seer stone, and should have one, but they are kept from them in consequence of their wickedness, and most of those who do find one make evil use of it.” (Brigham Young’s journal, as quoted in Latter-day Millennial Star, 26:118,119)
“…no man can look in the them [the Interpreters] except he be commanded, lest he should look for that he ought not and should perish.” (Mosiah 8:13)
Interesting that we carry around these little black bricks made of plastic, metal, and glass in our pockets that illuminate and permit us to gaze upon them to reveal a multitude of things. If all earthly things are echoes of the heavenly, then perhaps having this technology provides an additional area of proving for us mortals.
Given our current ‘miraculous’ technological privileges, what do we seek after, what do we look for?
Would our motives be any different if it was heavenly technology?
